If you appreciate the mindful, yet trippy work of UNKLE and the early Bonobo records, Shumnote's delightful new single "Ray" will brighten up your day.

The track dwells in the downtempo / triphop space and it evokes a sense of serenity and calmness, while also capturing the raw beauty of nature. A seamless musical experience, "Ray" is heavily built on the backbone of echoing haunting vocals, which further enhance the eerie feel to it. The real cherry on the top? The string ending. Pure bliss.

Not much is available for either Shumnote or his partner in crime Alina Petrova, so we'll let the music speak for itself. If you dig this, definitely check our Downtempo Chillout playlist.
